LBackup Source Code Download

The LBackup source code is contained within a zipped archive.

The source code is also available once LBackup is installed using the Apple or deb packages.

Once you have downloaded and unzipped the lbackup source directory you will need to install LBackup.

The default install location is within the '/usr/local/libexec/' directory. The installation process consists of creating various symbolic links. The most important links are to the backup script and the maillog script. Links to these scripts are placed within the '/usr/local/sbin/' directory. This process is automated when using the LBackup install package on Mac OS X.
